3. Define Plan Budget

Navigation : Define Workforce Compensation Page » Expand Budgets Task

Budgeting is optional. If you choose to enable it, you create one or more budget pools and link them to particular compensation components. You Can :

  • Link a budget to more than one component.

Note: You can hide a budget pool from managers, but allow administrators to see when acting as proxy.

Also make yourself familiar with following concept and terminology

Budgeting Method

Distribute the budget at the manager or worker level.

•Manager Level Budgeting : Higher level managers distribute budgets to lower level managers.

•Worker Level Budgeting : Line managers allocate budgets to individual workers. The sum of all individual worker budgets determines a manager’s overall budget.

Budget Storage Method

•Amount : Manager’s budget does not change when workers move to another manager’s worksheet or a workers eligible salary changes.

•Percentage : Manager’s budget changes dynamically when workers are reassigned between worksheets, lose or gain eligibility, or eligible salary changes.

Budget Publishing : Automatically publish budgets to all managers when the compensation cycle is started.
